Quick Look

The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is for the most part the same car it’s been for years. The SUV still offers a spacious and comfortable cabin along with tons of reliable safety mechanisms. Its biggest pitfalls include a somewhat dated design and poor engine selection.




Full Review

The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is a family vehicle at heart, which is why size, comfort and safety should be some of the most important qualities to take into account. Luckily, the new Traverse does well in all three areas. That being said, there are places where this SUV falls behind, and those areas are design and engine selection.

The outside look has remained virtually unchanged for over five years now, but it’s not too dated, thanks to a few changes to the front and back. While several of its competitors, such as the Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot, are rugged and blocky, this one dares to be curvaceous – maybe a little too curvaceous, especially at the back. The LT trim comes with side mirrors that have integrated blind-spot mirrors for better visibility, while the LTZ models offer electronic blind-spot monitors. And if that’s not enough as far as external features go, you can also get dual exhaust pipes, chrome accents and body-colour moldings. The liftgate the car comes with is manually-operated in the lower trims, but if you go for the higher ones, you get a power-operated liftgate.

The cabin of the 2015 Traverse comes with three seating rows, which should be no surprise for those who are familiar with this SUV. The cheaper models can seat eight passengers since there is a bench in the second row, while the more expensive ones come with captain’s chairs in the second row, allowing for seven passengers in total. Material-wise, the base LS model offers only cloth upholstery and manual-adjust front seats, while the top LTZ trim comes with leather seating that also have heating and cooling. The Traverse’s best attribute is space since it can comfortably fit adults even in its third row.

Safety-wise, it’s not a bad car either. In fact, it’s one of the best. Some of the features include four-wheel antilock brakes, front side-mounted airbags, traction and stability control as well as the three-row head airbags. The top trims come with lane departure warnings, blind spot alert and forward collision alert.

In terms of powertrains, there’s only one option – a 3.6-litre V6 engine, which can produce 281 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The engine can be upgraded to produce 288 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, if you go for a dual-exhaust system – which you’ll find in the LTZ models only. All trims combine their engines with a six-speed automatic transmission that has a manual-shift node. Front-wheel models are standard, while all-wheel-drive ones are optional.

Overall, the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is almost the same kind of vehicle it’s been for years. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though since for the most part it was a good vehicle.

Power and Performance:

The Traverse is a family vehicle at its core, and it performs well enough for that use. However, we wouldn't call it agile or quick, especially with its 5,000-pound curb weight.

Both front- and all-wheel-drive configurations are available, but we've noticed that AWD versions do sap a little more power from the experience; as such, the Traverse feels quick enough for its intended family-hauling purpose. The Traverse will be able to tow up to 5,200 pounds.

Ride and handling have been improved with new rebound springs in the front, which helps with roll control. The Traverse has pretty well-tuned, old-style hydraulic power steering, and the changes made for last year help firm up the Traverse's response to quick handling manuevers, yet keep its ride smooth. 

It's a very heavy vehicle, and it does little from behind the wheel to mask that from the steering wheel. The smooth 3.6-liter direct-injection V-6 has been programmed for more confident passing power and quicker shifts; yet this is still a combination that needs to work hard up highway grades or from a standing start.

Interiors and Special Features:

The 2015 Traverse has three rows of seats and can be configured for seven or eight passengers. Lower trims are built for eight with a bench seat in the second row, while upper trims can seat seven with a pair of roomy captain's chairs in the second row. Base LS models make do with cloth seating and manual-adjust front seats, while top-line LTZ models have leather seats that are heated and cooled up front. One of the best traits about the Traverse is that it's big enough for adults to sit in the third row and still boast enough room behind the seats for groceries.

Safety features:

Standard safety items returning to the 2015 Traverse lineup are expected to include 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front side-mounted airbags and 3-row head airbags. Again depending on the trim selected, look for daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights and turn-signal-integrated mirrors to also make a return engagement. Look for the top-end LTZ, meantime, to sport forward a collision alert, lane-departure warnings and a blind-spot alert that were made standard in 2014.
